How the fund works
As a member, every time you shop at Co-op, 1% of what you spend on selected own-brand products and services goes to the local community fund.
The money raised by all the members in your community, together with money from shopping bag sales, helps to fund local projects in the area where you live.
Since September 2016, we've raised a total of more than £20 million.
You can choose which cause you want your own 1% to go to.
Any money raised by members who don't select a cause is added to the money raised from shopping bag sales and shared equally between the causes in their local area.
We choose new causes every 12 months.
